“Detroit’s Native Son” Yusef Shakur comes to GR Saturday to address gun violence

Grand Rapids has experienced an increase in gun violence this year and last. In response, myself along with some other concerned community members, have arranged to have an author, community organizer and motivational speaker, Yusef Shakur, share his experience revitalizing Detroit’s Zone 8 community. He will be screening his newly released documentary, Detroit ’s Native Son: From Zone 8 Thug, to Prison, to Community Activist.

The event will include an Informational Fair, providing attendees with information about local businesses, non profits and opportunities to engage in community activism.
